You can use getInstrument to see the instruments
Please take a look at the files in the demo directory
You'll also probably be interested in ?buildHierarchy
build_series_symbols does nothing but return a character vector and it
does not store it anywhere and it does not create any instruments. (I
personally use future_id from the twsInstrument package to serve the
purpose of build_series_symbols)
